Love glowing dewy look for summer. When I see Becca has released a new beach tint shimmer souffle, I knew I need it in my life.
There are 6 shades available and it is so hard to choose. I finally decided on Lychee/Opal which is an unusual shade for me. But I want to have a brighter pink shade on my cheeks which actually would show up on my skin tone. I have other pink blushes but usually with my NC30-35, it barely show up.
Lychee/Opal is described as bubblegum pink infused with golden opal. It has the most interesting texture. It is exactly soft and bouncy as the name souffle suggests.
Don't let the bright bubblegum pink shade scare you. When it is applied, it is nothing like that.
When it is swatched, it is more like a peachy-pink with the golden shimmer infused in it.
The Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle is described as:
A pop of luminescent colour in an air-whipped cheek souffle. Water-resistant and oil-free, it provides effortlessly buildable color with a soft, lustrous finish, infused with skin-soothing, redness-reducing brown algae, this formula hydrates and revives dull skin for a youthful glow.
This is very comparable to my other favorite blush, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush. This has a bit more shimmer than the Hourglass one. As the golden opal is quite dominant in the pot, you really need to use a light hand. I find the best way to apply is to use a small stippling brush.
Here is a comparison of lychee/opal with similar blushes in my collection.

I am totally in love with this new blush. It gives my cheeks the prettiest glow and the lasting power is very impressive. Perfect for hot weather as it doesn't seem to fade off throughout the day.
Highly recommend this blush if you are looking for a luminescent one and water-resistant. It would be great when you spend a lot of time outdoor and even to the pool.
